Community Power Grant at Cedar Park

The challenge set forth in this all-school project is to have the Cedar Park staff, students and families become aware of the waste we produce at school and at home and recognize that our society’s growing waste generation rate is a problem that we need to address.

Cedar Park has chose three waste issues to address in this project:

1. Reduce the student and family use of disposable bags

2. Recognize and reduce the amount of paper consumption in the school community

3. Educate the community about packaging waste.

Made possible by the Solid Waste Management Coordinating Board.

Field Studies at Dakota County Parks

Three times a year (fall, winter, and spring) our students will participate in environmental classes taught by park naturalists, our science specialist, the classroom teachers, and a guest artist. Most of the field studies will be held at a Dakota County Park. Check out the school calendar for specific grade level dates.

Minnesota Native Habitat Learning Area

Cedar Park Elementary School will plant a Minnesota Native Habitat learning area to provide a setting where the students and community can explore and learn in a natural environment. This nature restoration project will be planted around the new science addition being built this summer and fall. The planting will begin in October. If you are interested in helping us plant contact Monica Foss at Monica.Foss@district196.org.

The WORKS - A Technology Discovery Center

The Works is a “hands-on, minds-on” museum that makes learning about engineering, science and technology interesting, understandable and interactive. The students will spend two hours at The WORKS: one hour exploring the exhibits at the museum and one hour participating in a class.
